went down to my LGS and there was a guy trying to sell a beretta 1201fp but the store owner would only give him $200. I quietly strolled out of the store right ahead of the guy and gave him my number in the parking lot. I was hoping to get a chance to look up the gun but the guy called me within 5 minuets. I looked the gun over and gave him $350 bucks for a like new 1201fp with a nice beretta case. I felt ok giving him that much because I knew the gun store was going to put at least $400 probably more if they had bought it. after some searching I was relived to read positive reports on these shotguns.

anyway here it is

I like the configuration it's in but if I could I'd like to get a railed forend and collapsable stock if anyone makes them.

That's a steal, but you are not going to find any bolt-up aftermarket stocks or forends. For the price, you shouldn't even consider complaining. ;)

I ain't gonna complain. a mag clamp and a streamlight scorpion for a light setup and some non-skid tape on the ultra smooth forend and on to the next one.:D

That's a great deal! I have one too and shot slugs out of it yesterday at the range!

the weather has been bitter cold for the last month but I'm hoping to take it for a spin monday. I got a 15rd box of slugs and I grabbed a couple boxes of upper end birdshot. the box says 1400fps so hopefully they'll cycle the gun and give me something less expensive to play with. I'll probably order some wolf buckshot for the range too.

Your birdshot should work with no problem. My one ounce slugs from Winchester are 1760 FPS.

That is of course basically a Benelli .I don't know about parts interchange but takedown is basically the same.

Good score!! I love my Beretta, light and super fast handling, points naturally and is accurate with slugs at 100metres...
Great buying, enjoy:cool:
